This report follows on from a report published by the DRHE last year relating to the 2016 families, Analysis of the Newly Homeless Families Accommodated by Dublin’s Homeless Services during 2016. A year on there is richer data on the 2016 families and the opportunity to review data for the 2017 families. The comparison of both years confirms trends in the profile of families and their progression through services. Once again this report highlights that lone parent, non-Irish national and larger families are more susceptible to homelessness than other family types when compared with the general population. The report also demonstrates that the homeless Housing Assistance Payment has been instrumental in accommodating families who leave emergency accommodation in under six months. It also points out that up to 18% of all families leave emergency accommodation without the need for support from service providers or the local authority. It confirms that a small number of families remain in emergency accommodation for long periods.
